Storm brings about 1" or less of rain to Bay Area cities

- The amount of rain that fell in major Bay Area cities since early Thursday morning has been about an inch or less, National Weather Service officials said.

Santa Rosa reported 1.06 inches of rain while San Francisco recorded .81 inches and Oakland reported .59 inches, National Weather Service forecaster Steve Anderson said.

Concord reported .60 inches and San Jose recorded .28 inches, Anderson said.

A gauge in Salinas collected .56 inches and in Monterey .52 inches fell, Anderson said. 

A second part of the storm swept through the Bay Area overnight bringing heavy rain, hail and thunderstorms to parts of the Bay Area. 

Although the rain tapered off for the morning commute Friday, there will still be scattered showers widespread across the Bay Area.

KTVU has received multiple reports of standing water on roadways. 

At 4:50 a.m. Gasia Mikaelian reported flooding on Highway 580 at Lakeshore Avenue in Oakland. She says the standing water on the roadways prompted a series of crashes.

Gasia says she was stopped for longer than 45 minutes in the area. As of 5:40 a.m. traffic was moving again, but there were still backups.

We'll see lighter rain Saturday, with the most rain focused in the North Bay.
